Appearances do hold the capability of being deceiving, but you will find no other school that keeps reality in check unlike Cajon High School. Cajon is a wonderful high school seated in the harmonious community of San Bernardino. With appeasable classes, clubs, sports, and programs for all students. Cajon keeps things ideal, making it easy for every student on campus to achieve their goals. In my own opinion, Cajon exceeds its ability of having its students become associated with the reality of college especially with its program of IB (International Baccalaureate). Cajon is a great place to learn and grow!

The school district that I am enrolled in, SBCUSD, doesn't have the most excellent high schools. The one I currently attend, Cajon High School, is the best option in my city. They don't have nearly as much fights as the other high schools. The security there is very comforting and reassures me that I am safe. Unfortunately, some of the staff do not have the students' best interests at heart. I have personally experienced this. I had a math teacher during my freshman year that did not care if her students learned the curriculum she was teaching. It was as if she was there for the paycheck, rather than the students' future. I feel that Cajon High School could improve on choosing their teachers. High school is an important thing to a students' life, after all, it is what determines the students' future. If you are going to spend four years at a high school, the least they can do is care for your education and help you in any way possible.
I have had the pleasure of attending Cajon High School for four years. I have grown up hearing good things about Cajon from my sister, my friends, and my teachers. It wasn't until 2017 that I was finally able to attend Cajon. On my first day of High School, I was scared and nervous. I remember walking up the steps to the entrance of the school and seeing cheerleaders, a marching band, and a group of ASB students who were outside the school welcoming students as they entered. Immediately, I felt welcomed, at ease, and excited for High School. From that moment on, I have had the pleasure to be a part of a welcoming campus filled with administrators, staff, and teachers who genuinely care about their students and are willing to help them learn and succeed. Cajon is like a second home to me. It has such a diverse campus where all the students are friendly and inviting. I am proud to say that I am a Cowboy and Cajon will always be my home no matter where I go.
